Season 3, ultimately, was about two characters. The problem with the fact that it was ultimately about two character is that neither or those characters was Olivia Pope, who is supposed to be the main character on her own show but got none of that love this season.
I am done. This one sided uncreative writing predictable . She can have her show back. She won’t tease me anymore with Olitz is the endgame. Cause she won’t.write them as the endgame. She wanted Scott Foley untalented ass she put him front and center. Now Next season she can sell him and the lack luster Ojake crap.and try to.get viewers. Cause I am out.
I think Shonda will write Olitz as end game. It will be at the end of the series- nothing we will ever get to see & enjoy. If you want to stay and get jerked around till that happens, go for it. You’d be better off just writing and/or reading fan fiction. You won’t ever have more than that.
I always doubted that Olitz was end game. But after the last few season finales, ironically, I think it is. Olitz never, ever does, despite Fitz having a child, Edison, Jake, her cray cray parents, Olivia’s love for Fitz grows stronger and stronger. Or she gains greater clarity about that love. She tells Jake to his face that she loves Fitz. She gets on a plane, but we all know she’s not sure, despite saying she is. It’s obvious that this is Shondas end game. This story is about Olivia and how she deals with loving this man. Problem is though, after several torturous seasons of merry go round storytelling, will there be an audience left to care.
Right you are.I think Olitz were always going to be end game but, she over did it. It was good to see the conflict but sometimes it was so ugly and Fitz came away looking bad never mind that in some ways he’s very much a victim. I couldn’t even bring myself to muster any enthusiasm when ‘their song’ filtered out…maybe fact that it overlapped the Huck and Quinn scene further left me feeling squimish.
I’m okay with Liv taking off with Jake, we’ve always said she needs a friend.And what better friend than Jake. Jake has been there every step of the way; shoulder to cry on, they’ve plotted and schemed together, the booty calls. He knows all there is to know about her and he’s still there.
Papa Pope maybe out to use him but, he’s also set off a new chain of events what with that box he dispatched to David’s.
The Grants need space to mourn, , for the loss of their child and their marriage and it’s just as well Liv has extricated herself from the WH. Liv too needs a break, she needs to evaluate all this new information that has come to light.
I think folk need to go back and re-watch S3 in it’s entirety before writing the show off. We’ve been through the worst and come S4 things should pick up.I believe the protagonists will still have their share of problems but they’ll be able to deal with them maturely.
It was nice to see Fitz seek out Mellie and comfort her.
It was nice to see Liv tell Jake that she’s in love with Fitz. Point blank period.
It was nice for Jake to tag along with Liv for the ride. They can be friends.
It was nice to see Mellie reach for the phone during Fitz’s hour of need to call Liv.
It was nice to see Quinn releasing Huck back to his family even though she loves him.
These people have been to hell and back and they seem to have learnt something about unconditional love. Abby and David preceded, so nothing to discuss.
As for Cy…
Sorry guys :( gonna go on a bit of an unfollowing purge because I use tumblr on my phone most of the time so I can’t get tumblr saviour and I don’t want my dash dominated with Scandal. Go ahead and unfollow if you’re here for Scandal because I’m not going to be blogging about it anymore.
What about fanfic?
I’ve fallen behind on reading most of the fanfics anyway. I can’t support or expend energy on a show anymore that is intent on marginalizing the one WOC lead. It bums me out too much and makes me so cynical when I think about it.
D’aww. But I hear you, I do. I’m not as vested as I used to be either. Bummer.
i’ve lost something too…it’s just not what i thought or hoped it would be…but so be it…
Daddy told y’all he was gonna fuck shit up since September
Y’all weren’t listening.
Daddy stormed through DC and let y’all know about these levels and how Fitz wasn’t never gonna be shit.
Let Maya off her leash and let her fuck shit up for a while. Do all the heavy lifting while that nigga was in the museum dusting fossils, catching up on ancient birds.
Daddy the OG in this shit.
The fucking truest OG.
Eli Pope is the Bumpy Johnson of this DC shit.
